Thorogood on board with Derek Kraus in the Truck Series as he makes his Nashville Superspeedway debut

Derek Kraus is set to compete in his first race at Nashville Superspeedway, as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series makes its return to the 1.33-mile D-shaped oval on Friday.

Nashville will mark the first race with Thorogood featured as the primary sponsor on the McAnally-Hilgemann Racing No. 19 Toyota Tundra driven by Kraus.

Thorogood is a division of the Weinbrenner Shoe Company, company founded in 1892. The Thorogood brand, established in 1917, represents premier lines of occupational footwear. Thorogood is an industry leader in boots for the working trades and in outdoor, public safety and tactical footwear. For more information, visit www.thorogoodusa.com

The excitement has been building this year in anticipation of this weekend’s big NASCAR tripleheader at Nashville Superspeedway. It will mark the first NASCAR Cup Series race at the revamped Tennessee track and the return of the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the Camping World Truck Series.

Like most drivers in the series, Kraus will be making his first start at Nashville Superspeedway. Only a handful of series drivers entered in Friday’s race competed there previously.
